Route 66 RV Resort, Albuquerque, NM
We stayed here for one night on New Year’s Eve while travelling from Colorado to Elephant Butte, NM. We typically stay at the Isletta Lakes RV Park since it is in a better location but when checking this year the reviews had gone down hill. They also don’t allow you to reserve a site and it’s right on a railroad track and can be quite noisy. Route 66 RV Resort and Casino is about 20 miles west of Albuquerque on Interstate 40. The park is much nicer and worth the extra miles and we had a great dinner in the Thunder Road Steakhouse & Cantina.
